About Jack's Parrot Place
The Parrot Place was founded in 2001. The parrot place is dedicated to raising the finest parrots and exotic birds, educating the public, improving the conditions in which parrots are raised under and combating corruption in the industry. Unlike bird stores we sell the exotic bird that is best for you and your family.
Jack's Parrot Place is family-owned and operated in Chesapeake, Virginia. Since our business has opened its doors, we have treated every customer like they were a part of our family. Other businesses may offer similar services, but our services are premier, offer superb value and come with a personal touch .
Most parrots are social birds that live in groups called flocks. African grey parrots live in flocks with as many as 20 to 30 birds.
Many species are monogamous and spend their lives with only one mate. The mates work together to raise their young. Parrots throughout the flock communicate with one another by squawking and moving their tail feathers.
Parrots are omnivores, which means that they can eat both meat and vegetation. Most parrots eat a diet that contains nuts, flowers, fruit, buds, seeds and insects. Seeds are their favorite food. They have strong jaws that allow them to snap open nutshells to get to the seed that's inside.
Keas use their longer beaks to dig insects out of the ground for a meal, and kakapos chew on vegetation and drink the juices.
Parrots are like most other birds and lay eggs in a nest. Some species, though, lay their eggs in tree holes,ground tunnels, rock cavities and termite mounds. Parrots typically lay two to eight eggs at one time. A parrot's egg needs 18 to 30 days of incubation before it can hatch, so the parents take turns sitting on the eggs.
A parrot chick is born with only a thin layer of thin, wispy feathers called down. Parrot chicks are blind for the first two weeks of their lives. At three weeks, they start to grow their adult feathers. The chick will not be fully matured for one to four years, depending on its species.
